To financially support artists and nurture their creative process during these challenging times, Works & Process at the Guggenheim is granting over $150,000 for artists to create new works while observing social distancing guidelines. New works posted every Sunday and Monday at 7:30pm.
Silas Farley, former NYCB dancer and emerging choreographer, who will create a newly commissioned piece for TWB’s NEXTsteps program later this season, is one of WPA’s featured choreographers. Get to know this amazing artist and up-and-coming choreographer by viewing his piece created for WPA, “Anachorisi (Departure)”!
“This choreography is a set of three variations and a trio that I made for myself, my wife, and her sister. The steps flow from the music, which is the first movement of “Cyclades” for solo guitar by Kyle Werner. Through it, I hope that each of you will be refreshed and experience some of the joy that my family and I had in making this dance as we quarantined together.” – Silas Farley
